In this musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale by Michael Sgouros & Brenda Bell at the intimate Players Theatre, the beautiful but put-upon Cinderella must toil all day under the smirking demands of her awful stepsisters -- and then sleep among the cinders at night. Cinderella finds a way to make it to the Prince's ball, though, and even manages to capture his heart. Yes, she loses one of her shoes in the process, but what she gains is more precious than all the gold in the kingdom. Before the one-hour musical begins, you and your family can participate in interactive arts workshops where you'll learn about the original book and how it was brought to the stage. Kids can even make their own pumpkin carriage and magic wand to take home as a souvenir.
